Yale Law School professor James Forman Jr. has spent decades teaching, writing, and working on the ground in criminal procedure and policy, juvenile justice, and education law and policy. A former law clerk for Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, public defender in Washington, D.C., and Georgetown law professor, he has written for The New York Times, The Atlantic, and numerous other publications and law reviews. In his “remarkable” and “beautifully written” (Washington Post) new book, Forman seeks to understand the historical and continuing support for mass incarceration by African American leaders.
